Response from Dr. Young
This constellation of tests indicate either prior infection with or vaccination to hepatitis A. IgG is the subtype of antibody that the immune system makes after exposure to a virus, it tends to persist for life. The negative IgM indicates that the infection or vaccination event did not happen recently.
Hope that helps, BY
